Ex-Duke star Jay Williams jumping the gun on Mason Plumlee

By Jeff Goodman | College Basketball Insider

Former Duke star and ESPN analyst Jay Williams tweeted that Blue Devils junior forward Mason Plumlee has decided to put his name in for the NBA Draft.

According to multiple sources, that's news to Plumlee.

Plumlee told numerous sources on Thursday he's "looking at the NBA" and Duke is gathering information whether he'll be a first-rounder. He intends to sit down with his family this week and then make a decision prior to the April 10 deadline.

The 6-foot-10 Plumlee averaged 10.9 points and 9.1 rebounds per game, a slight increase from the 7.2 points and 8.4 boards he put up as a junior.
